    iMac 2010 27" QuadI7 OSX10.11, iMac 2008 OSX10.11, MBP Late2011OSX10.11 , iPad Air, iPhone 3GS
    Because Lion is a TRUE 64-Bit OS. It will not install on a 32-Bit Core Duo CPU. Sorry.

    Specs:
    Way... way too many specs to list.
    It's really not that big a deal. Functionally Lion's really not that much more impressive than Snow Leopard.

    Specs:
    Imac 27", 3.3GHz, 512 flash storage, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra.
    Do not worry too much about it. We all had the same problem when Leopard would only install on +867MHz processors, and then Snow Leopard only installs on an Intel machine. This is called progress alas.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
